Book Description

The book begins by tackling the initial set up of Xero to ensure optimum configuration for success. From there, the next logical step is to set up the automated bank feeds, which is the best innovation in bookkeeping in years. Now that your bank data is ready for importing, we will tackle the most common transactional items, being sales invoices and purchase bills. Despite these being largely transactional, we will work through ways to automate the process where possible, save time, and avoid potential human errors along the way. Then we will start checking reports and analyze what is working or not and make changes to workflows and setups. The end result is that you will have a fully configured system ready to use and years of experience offering best practice solutions to what have been, for years, unnecessary roadblocks in your business.

The Hand I Was Dealt: Part II

// October 9th, 2017 // No Comments » // David Helpling, Jon Jenkins

This story has a little something for everyone. It could be considered the greatest love story ever told as he bounces back from a broken heart and an abundance of lust-filled relationships only to find true love and get married. It is the true-life story of a drug king pin that was eventually captured and sentenced to life. The injustices that he has faced in the judicial system are very much relevant in today’s political climate as Jeff Sessions rolls back judicial reform. It also contains a message to young black people in poverty that there is more to this world that is introduced to you in your local hoods. He shows the youth how to dig deep within to find their true calling; to shed the skin of a “nigga” and chase their dream on a path to greatness. Nate has always said that, “The hunger for a better life, has caused me my life.” He is serving a life sentence for murder and the distribution of tons of cocaine that he has never been charged for. He wasn’t even convicted of those crimes, but somehow has managed to get a life sentence for them. All of these events would have been avoided if Hill could have pursued his dream of becoming a lawyer, but the cards were stacked against him. He had no other choice to bring his family out of poverty stricken conditions, but to Play the Hand He Was Dealt. Now sit back and enjoy the ride as Nate takes you on his journey from being a mechanic, truck driver, drag racer, drug dealer, entrepreneur, humanitarian, to a convicted felon.

The 9 Disciplines of a Facilitator: Leading Groups by Transforming Yourself

// July 23rd, 2017 // No Comments » // David Helpling, Jon Jenkins

What takes place in the head and heart of an effective facilitative leader? How do they find the inner resources to draw upon? What is the source of their powerful effect on people and situations? The 9 Disciplines of a Facilitator examines these questions and explores the self-mastery it takes to become a great facilitator. Written by Jon and Maureen Jenkins, two of the long-term members of the International Association of Facilitators (IAF), this much-needed resource explains that facilitation is more than a process or a set of techniques for managing groups—facilitation is its own profession with its own set of disciplines that help define the facilitator’s role. Throughout the book the authors detail the nine personal disciplines of effective facilitators: Detachment, Engagement, Focus, Awareness, Action, Presence, Interior Council, Intentionality, and a Sense of Wonder.
